MoD Generals Sergiu Medar and Gheorghe Rotaru, under DNA investigation

Anti-corruption prosecutors have started criminal investigations against Generals Sergiu Medar and Gheorghe Rotaru in the case regarding the illegal acquisition of work homes where ex-Defence Minister Corneliu Dobritoiu (PNL) has been also indicted, Mediafax informs. Medar and Rotaru reported to the National Anti-Corruption Directorate (DNA) yesterday morning to be informed on the charges brought against them. Military anti-corruption prosecutors also summoned retired General Mircea Chelaru yesterday to be informed on the charges brought against him in the case in connection with the illegal acquisition of work homes. When leaving the DNA building, Chelaru said, in his opinion, he had done nothing wrong when he bought his work homes, explaining that the Ministry of National Defence was equipped with specialized bodies that could have ‘warned’ him if there had been any irregularities. General Sergiu Medar was presidential adviser on security matters in the first two years of Traian Basescu’s term. From 1999 to 2005, Sergiu Medar was the head of the Military Intelligence Directorate. General Gheorghe Rotaru was the head of the Army Intelligence Directorate General (DGIA) and adviser to interim President Crin Antonescu. The other people under investigation in the same case are ex-Defence Minister Corneliu Dobritoiu and General Traian Pigui.
